7:00 am
the morning. breaking news weather and traffic on the nbc 10 app. >> thanks for watching. today show starts right now. remember the umbrella. have a great day. good morning. the reset? >> believe in yourselves. believe in your future. and believe, once more, in america. >> president trump strikes a decidedly different tone in his first address to congress. >> the time for small thinking is over. the time for trivial fights is behind us. >> is this new version of mr. trump here to stay? is his agenda heavy on jobs, health care reform and national security ambitious or over promising? >> everything that is broken in our country can be fixed. every problem can be solved. >> this morning, reaction from both sides as vice president mike pence and senate minority
7:01 am
leader chuck schumer join us live. deadly outbreak. >> look at that! >> tornadoes cut swaths of destruction across the midwest. at least three people killed. homes destroyed. these cars blown off an interstate. the severe weather moving east with more than 106 million people in its path. and uber awkward. the ceo of the ride service caught on camera getting into a heated argument with one of his own drivers. >> you drove up prices. >> this morning, the ceo's br e brutally honest apology. why he says it is time for him to grow up today. wednesday, march 1th, 2017. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning, everybody. welcome to "today" on this wednesday morning.
7:02 am
first address to a joint session of congress. a big moment, big opportunity and kind of a different side to mr. trump last night. >> everybody is talking about the tone and how different it was from the tone of the inaugural address just about a month ago. of course, the president's speech is our top story this morning. mr. trump spoke for a little more than an hour, outlining his vision for the country while defending his administration's controversial policies with the noticeably softer tone. our political team is ready to break it down. we'll get reaction from vice president mike wepence and one the top democrats on capitol hill, chuck schumer. let's start with peter alexander at the white house. >> good morning to you. this morning, top white house aides are celebrating the speech as a grand slam. of course, they're supposed to say that. the reviews have been much more positive because the speech was so much more traditional. many branding it the best of mr. trump's short political career. the president calling on democrats and republicans to work with him and harolding a
7:03 am
mandate to reinvest in america. >> reporter: in president trump's first address to congress, a familiar america first theme but a strikingly more measured tone. >> i am here tonight to deliver a message of unity and strength, and it is a message deeply delivered from my heart. >> reporter: the president out of the gate denouncing recent threats to jewish centers and schools, as well as last week's murder of an indian man in kansas. >> while we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all of its very ugly forms. >> reporter: hours after signaling what would be a major policy shift, openness to a pathway to legalization for undocumented immigrants, only a vague promise of immigration reform. >> i believe real and positive immigration reform is possible. >> reporter: mr. trump also ordering the department of homeland security to create a new office to support victims of
7:04 am
crimes committed by immigrants. drawing loud groans from democrats. >> the office is called voice. victims of immigration crime engagement. >> reporter: on health care, the president again vowing to repeal and replace what he called the imploding obamacare disaster. >> obamacare is collapsing, and we must act decisively to protect all americans. >> reporter: president trump offering an optimistic message, where no promise was too great. >> everything that is broken in our country can be fixed. every problem can be solved. >> reporter: his remarks distinctly nationalist on schools. >> education is the civil rights issue of our time. >> reporter: trade. >> we must create a level playing field for american companies and our workers. >> reporter: and infrastructure. >> the time has come for a new program of national rebuilding.
7:05 am
>> reporter: the president's hour-long address cast by the white house as unified, but also revealing the depth of partisan divisions that still exist. democratic women dressing in white to honor the fight for women's suffrage. some of the president's declaration drawing ridicule. on foreign policy, mr. trump was restrained by forceful. >> we are taking measures to protect our nation from radical islamic terrorism. >> reporter: the night's most poignant moment. >> brian died as he lived, a warrior and a hero. >> reporter: his praise for ryan owens, a navy s.e.a.l. killed. his widow overwhelmed by emotion. >> i spoke to our great general mattis just now, who reconfirmed that, and i quote, ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to victories in
7:06 am
the future against our enemy. ryan's legacy is etched into eternity. >> reporter: the bipartisan ovation lasted for nearly two minutes. >> that was a powerful moment last night. president trump was much more disciplined. largely steering clear of the controversies that have weigh e heavily on his presidency. no mention of russia. only a single criticism of the media. aides tell me the president's revised travel ban executive order initially scheduled to be released today is now being delayed. matt and savannah? >> peter alexander at the white house, thank you. senate minority leader chuck schumer is with us now. good morning. i know it was a late night. >> good morning. >> before we get to the substance of the speech, and we will, let's talk about this a y decisive change in the president's tone. this is a kindler, gentler
7:07 am
donald trump, and do you buy it? >> not really. his speeches are detached from reality. in his campaign and even his inaugural speech, he talks to the working people of america. but for the last 40 days, his actions have been decidedly on the side of the special interests hurting working america. a few quick examples. infrastructure. we haven't seen a plan. democrats for a month have put a plan on the schedule -- down on the ground, and he hasn't talked a thing about infrastructure. his advisers say maybe next year. trade, he had a great example to do something on trade, not just talk about it. call china a currency manipulator, which he said he'd go in his campaign the first day. education, medical research. he talked touchingly about it. >> senator -- >> and one more. the swamp. he is going to clean the swamp when he has a cabinet of billionaires, bankers, conflicts of interest. >> it brought a groan from the
7:08 am
crowd. you didn't find a lot of reasons to stand and cheer, but give me one thing the president said in that speech last night, senator, where you found yourself saying, yes. i can join him and get behind him on that issue. >> well, matt, here's the problem. he's given a whole lot of speeches, and we've seen that the speeches and the reality don't match. i'll say yes when he comes up with something that is really -- helps working people and says, i want to work with democrats. here's my proposal. what's yours? >> in an hour, you didn't hear one thing you can stand behind this morning? >> look, i was touched by the mention of the widow of the brave soldier who died in yemen and things like that. but, no, it is hard to see any place where the president actually has done something for working people. >> senator -- >> a speech has a shelf life. people forgot his inaugural speech. he had 40 days, difficult time
7:09 am
because he is not governing like his speeches. i predict this speech will be forgotten in a day or two, and where is the action? where is the actual doing things to helping working people? that's what we want and what we're waiting for. >> immigration reform, a big issue. he campaigned on it. he signalled an openness to compromise. earlier in the day was reported to have said perhaps even a pathway for undocumented imgr e immigrants to have legal status, different than citizenship. is that enough to get a deal done? >> we've been to the movie before. this is the third time in the last month he mentioned he might be for some kind of immigration reform, and a day later, his advisers, his base, made him pull it back. it is typical to the cosmopolitan, national reporters, he mentions this. then his speech's tone is anti-immigrant. this is what america is up against, a president who says one thing but in reality just does another. that's why his administration
7:10 am
has such trouble. >> listening to all you're saying this morning, does it surprise you, senator, that an overnight poll found that 7 in 10 americans who watched that speech last night say they ended feeling more optimistic as opposed to less optimistic? >> as i said, speeches have a shelf life. everyone has forgotten his inaugural speech, promises in speeches in the campaign. he has to do something, not for special interests, but for working people. plain and simple. >> senate minority leader, chuck schumer, thanks for being with us. >> nice to talk to you. >> we'll hear from the other side. vice president mike pence joining lester in the next half hour. let's go to today's fact check. we turn to nbc's kristen welker. good morning to you. >> good morning to you. like most big speeches, there was a lot of soaring rhetoric tuesday night, but our fact check shows some of the president's statements didn't exactly add up. including on some of his signature issues.
7:11 am
jobs and the economy. >> reporter: president trump laid out his vision for the country tuesday. one of his top promise, creating more jobs. arguing millions are out of work. >> 94 million americans are out of the labor force. >> reporter: that may be overstated. the unemployment rate is 4.8% with roughly 7 million people actively looking for a job. the 94 million the president cited includes people who are not looking for work, like students, stay at home parents and retired americans. still, mr. trump push forward on the issue of job creation, citing his call for the construction of oil pipelines here in the united states. >> we cleared the way for the construction of the keystone and dakota access pipelines. therefore creating tens of thousands of jobs. >> reporter: a look at the numbers tells a different story. the controversial dakota access pipeline is nearly finished, meaning job growth will be minimal. the state department says keystone could create a maximum
7:12 am
of 16,000 temporary, direct jobs. the number of permanent jobs created due to the keystone pipeline is smaller, just 35. another line raising eye bbrows this morning. >> since my election, ford, fiat, chrysler, general motor, lockheed, intel, walmart and many others have announced that they will invest billions and billions of dollars in the united states and will create tens of thousands of new american jobs. >> reporter: the president taking credit for business decisions that were largely made prior to his election. and on his call to boost military spending by $54 billion -- >> i am sending congress a budget that rebuilds the military, eliminates the defense sequester. >> reporter: the white house will slash domestic programs, but democrats and some republicans argue without reforming entitlements like social security and medicare, it won't add up.
7:13 am
finally, this ad lib line is getting attention. when the president talked about america's nato partners meeting their financial commitments. >> i can tell you the money is pouring in. very nice. >> reporter: the reality? in 2016, only four countries met their required payment standard. that money doesn't go to the united states but instead to nato or to beefing up the military of its member countries. >> not surprisingly, the president also repeated a familiar republican talking point that obamacare is collapsing. democrats and republicans have plenty of arguments supporting or knocking down that aassertio. the key question, will republicans keep their promise and continue coverage for the 20 million americans who now have health coverage who didn't before. >> kristen welker at the white house. thank you very much. let's bring in nicolle wallace. >> good morning, guys. >> let me take you back 40 days to the inaugural address. the line that came out of the speech that everyone repeated and set the tone for the next
7:14 am
month was american carnage. >> right. >> what was the line from last night? >> the line that will be replayed to him and in our coverage over and over again is this promise that what is behind us are the trivial fights. because trivial fights are what he engages in on twitter all day, every day. and we talked last night about how possibly there was an intervention in which he participated, where he realized -- you know, he lives and dies by his own feedback loop. to change the coverage, he had to change the tone. >> republicans who were very pleased at this performance last night are asking themselves, can he sustain it? >> yeah. >> i think there is a second part to the question. do his die-hard supporters want him to? they elected the trump who throws bombs, that kind of thing. do they want to see this version? >> they do. this was very comforting, not just to the establishment republicans who have been doing a little hand wringing for the last 19 months, but to his base. they want to see him be successful in enacting what is still a controversial agenda. >> i think a lot of democrats,
7:15 am
obviously, don't trust what they saw last night. >> right. >> you heard that in chuck schumer. one of the reasons could be is they have to go back a week and listen to the message steve b bann bannon, his chief strategist, gave. do you think chuck schumer missed an opportunity to give credit where credit is due? >> the two people donald trump made the most uncomfortable last night are democrats, who will have a hard time opposing massive infrastructure spending and the republicans who may will weary or on the fence of his conservative credits. he has a respectable supreme court justice. >> thank you very much. another big story this morning is the weather. a line of storms has spawned deadly tornadoes and extensive damage all across the midwest. nbc is in the hard-hit town of ottawa, illinois. blake, good morning to you.
7:16 am
>> savannah, good morning. at least three people dead this morning from the overnight storms, including one person here in ottawa, illinois. you can see debris blocking roads, downed power lines, making them too dangerous to pass. as the sun comes up, folks here will soon see the full extent of the damage. >> oh, my god! >> it's a tornado. >> reporter: tornadoes ripping through the midwest overnight, leaving behind a twisted path of destruction. in illinois -- >> it's okay. [ crying ]. >> reporter: cell phone video captured the fear. >> holy crap. >> reporter: and shock of seeing a massive funnel cloud touch down. some people lost everything. >> it was all sentimental stuff. there's no saving it now. >> person trapped under a tree. not breathing. >> reporter: here in the small town of ottawa, the damage is devastating. at least one person was killed by a tree ripped from the ground. in missouri, near perryville, a
7:17 am
twister blew nearly a dozen vehicles off interstate 55. >> there is debris all over the place. >> reporter: buildings and homes shredded by high winds, killing one person there. >> why does this always happen after night comes? it's very difficult up there, all the emergency vehicles, the nights, you're blinded. >> reporter: and in arkansas, white county, the storm uprooted trees and downed power lines, injuring more than a dozen people. >> it's mind blowing. we've never had anything like this since i've been around. it's just pretty wild, seeing like your family and friends you grew up with, their houses tore up and everything a mess. >> and the threat is not over yet. in fact, it moves east today. more damaging winds, thunderstorms and even tornadoes possible. we'll be watching flight delays and cancellations closely. that's because the weather today will stretch all the way from new york city down to new orleans. savannah, matt and al?
7:18 am
>> blake mccoy, thank you so much. that sets the table well for you, al, where the storm is headed. >> right now, atlanta has a ground stop going on. ahead of the thunderstorms. it is going to be a strong and very dangerous day today. right now, we've got storms stretching all the way from upstate new york back to memphis, where we have tornado watches in effect. we're watching these storms right now. they are racing 75 to 85 miles per hour. you can't outrun them in a car. right now, 106 million people under the risk for severe weather today, scattered tornadoes likely and damaging winds will be the main threat. straight line winds can cause problems. this system moves from new york to new orleans, as blake mentioned. the travel delays will continue. and we have the risk of flooding from nashville into western pennsylvania for 1 to 3 inches of rain in these continuing round of thundersto

7:30 am
7:30 now on a wednesday morning. the 1st of march, 2017. we'll go out to the plaza and say hi to these people in just a little while. let's come on inside studio 1a and get some headlines on this wednesday morning. president trump delivered his first address to a joint session of congress last night. during the hour-long speech, he urged lawmakers to repeal and replace obamacare, vowed to secure the nation's borders and called for rebuilding the country's crumbling infrastructure. the president's agenda rolled out with a call for unity. >> the time for small thinking is over. the time for trivial fights is behind us. we just need the courage to share the dreams that fill our
7:31 am
hearts. >> president trump also promised construction would soon begin on his much-promised wall along the border with mexico. he did not say who would pay for it. a line of severe storms is moving east this morning after producing tornadoes across the midwest. at least three people were killed. one tornado blew cars and trucks off an interstate near perryville, missouri. another slammed into a town southwest of chicago. we'll get al's forecast for the day ahead. the 19-year-old hockey player is charged for this scene during a championship. 19-year-old brandon day raced out of the penalty box near the end of the game and shoved the referee to the ice. he was subdued, placed in police custody and has been suspended for a week from his school, erie community college. let's talk more about president trump's speech last night. lester holt is in washington, d.c. right now and sitting with the vice president mike pence.
7:32 am
please say hello to the vice president for us. >> i will. good morning, vice president pence. thank you for having us. >> welcome. >> before we talk about the substance of the speech, a lot of people are talking about the tone. it was a softer tone. he hit a lot of the same points we heard before but there was no american carnage, no dishonest media. did you or others counsel him to dial it back a bit? >> first off, it was a great speech. more importantly, lester, it was a great night for america. what the american people saw is the president i serve with every day. broad shoulders, a big heart and he laid out a specific agenda, which is the agenda that he ran on when he was elected in november. it is an agenda to repeal and replace obamacare, to rebuild this country's infrastructure, have better trade deals and is going to get the economy going again. >> he's talked about the things sometimes in a combative way. it wasn't like that last night. did you or others counsel him to bring it back? >> i would tell you that the
7:33 am
president that i saw last night is the president that i've seen every day since i joined this campaign. he's a fighter. when it comes time to making his case to the american people and fighting for what he believes in, he brings that case and he brings it strong. but i think what -- maybe it was just the context, the unique nature of an address to the joint session of congress, that the american people got a look at the president in full. they saw that -- they saw his strength. they saw his compassion. they saw his determination to move this country forward with optimism. i just couldn't be more proud to be some small part of it. >> to the extent he was able to articulate his vision in a different way, does it make your job easier? have you not gone as far as you can can executive orders and are now facing the tough work of negotiating with congress? >> i think what the president did last night is what great presidents do. he laid out an agenda for the congress and for the american people, but then he also laid out specifics. look, the president made the
7:34 am
case that we need to repeal obamacare. it is hurting american families, stifling our economy. people have seen premium increases of more than 100%. insurance companies are fleeing these exchanges. making the case against obamacare was first, but even more importantly, he laid out a framework, lester, for the congress. he said, here are my principles. as you look at replacing obamacare, here's how we'll make a better health care system in america. that's exactly the kind of leadership that will guide the congress and guide the legislative process to a better future. >> you also talked about obamacare, repealing it since day one. that hasn't happened. he said, wow, it is more complicated than anyone thought. i know many people in this down will dispute that. he is more like the chairman, a ceo of a company, and i have good people, he told speaker
7:35 am
ryan. >> one of the reasons, i think the president asked me to join the team had something to do with me not being only to governor but also serving in congress. make no mistake about it. i think last night represented a moment where the president, in an unfiltered way, was able to present the agenda to the american people. present both his strength and his heart. it gives me confidence we'll be able to move the country forward, hopefully in a bipartisan way. the president started last night on what truly unites us in this country, in condemning the hatred and anti-semitism that has emerged in acts and in threats in recent days. it was an important moment. but he also ended the speech, lester, by calling on republicans and democrats to come together, to set aside the trivial arguments of the present day and move toward that 250th
7:36 am
anniversary of our nation's founding with hope and optimism. >> all right. vice president opiniopence, tha for your time. great to see you, sir. >> thank you. >> back to you in new york. >> lester, we expect to see you with another interview tomorrow morning. >> let's not make this a regular thing. >> thanks to the vice president. we have a check of the weather. >> more on nig"nightly news." >> we're all one big happy family. >> that's the deal. we just ended the meteorological winter. the end goes from december 1st to march 1st. 16% of the weather stations had a cooler than normal weather. 84% of the stations reported a warmer than normal weather. 8% had the warmest winter on record. we're going to continue with records today in the eastern 1/3 of the country. potential records today for boston, new york, rochester, dulles airport in d.c. and

9:49 am
every time you're making a cup of coffee, you're cooking up germs, too. danielle, toys. i saw your kids loved playing with this one. does anybody disinfect it? >> not really. you have to think about cleaning toys as much as we clean the counter tops. i see something else that is a big culprit, the tv remote. i bet the kids think of this as a toy for themselves sometimes, too, right? one spot in the bathroom we get concerned about is actually the toothbrush holder. we tell people all the time to replace their toothbrushes every couple of weeks or when you're sick. >> right. >> but it is the bottom of the container that's just a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. i'm sure you know the ipad can be a ger mmy place, right? it is not cleaned every time someone touches it. you want to whiep ipe it down w disinfectant wipe. thank for having us. a pleasure to meet all of you.
9:50 am
i have the swabs here and i'll take them to the lab and analyze them. i'll call with the results. >> uh-oh. >> bye, guys. >> dr. natalie azar is here with the results. how are you doing? first off, your kids are beautiful. >> thank you. >> adorable. >> natalie, you checked for two things. bacteria and fungus or mold. >> yeah. >> so let's start with the remote control, the toy and the ipad. >> yeah. so those were the three items we checked for bacteria. the tv remote, the toy and the ip ipad. for the tv remote, the good news is that we did find two different kinds of bacteria. one commonly found in the mouth. we were talking about the kids probably put it into their mouth. there was evidence of that. none of the bacteria on the remote causes human disease. let's go to the toy. that's the big one. three different bacteria there. one is a staph that's on the skin. not harmful. another was a strep, not harmful.
9:51 am
we also found staph aureus. when it causes infection, it can range from skin infections to more serious blood-bourn infections. the last one, we have the ipad. the ipad also, we found two bacteria commonly found in water and soil and don't cause disease. we were actually pleasantly surprised by the findings. in spite of the fact that these are places where we do find a lot of more dangerous bacteria, like e. coli. we didn't find it here. >> am i right in saying that staph is on our skin all the time, around us all the time? >> about 1/3 of the population -- well, there are different kinds of staph. the one that causes disease is found in 1/3 of the population. it is when you get a break in the skin that it can cause infection. >> okay. >> excellent question, nick. >> sweetie, sorry but that remote doesn't work. >> trying to change the channel. >> you know what, so do my kids when i'm on. next?
9:52 am
>> okay. >> the coffeemaker, toothbrush and kitchen sink. >> we have the coffee reservoir. we found a lot of yeast. a yeast. here's the thing, the majority of the yeast that we found doesn't cause infection in people who are otherwise healthy. in the toothbrush holder, also, we didn't find any yeast and we didn't find any in the kitchen sink. you guys are doing a really good job. >> clean house. wow. >> what do you think about the results? >> we have the five-second rule at our house. drop it and pick it up, it still goes in the mouth. that's the -- >> yeah. we had the question, so this information is useful but i think more useful is how do you clean those objects, right? >> right. >> let's take the toy, for example. what the recommendation is, is to use soap, warm water and a mild bleach solution. you want to be doing your toys once a week. i'm not sure most of us do that. >> probably a good thing to do. we'll put more on the website.
